Looking for a nutritious, quick lunch or snack, that will keep well in the fridge and be loved by kids and adults alike?

Stand aside the traditional meatball, hello BBQ ‘neat’ balls!

 

 

Protein-packed with lentils and full of healthy omegas in the form of walnuts, these have a delicious texture, that works well with pretty much any flavour combination!

My daughter Hope just loves them and will devour them at all times. They’re also great as snack straight from the fridge and work brilliantly in the lunch box too.

Served with a salad for a hearty lunch or dinner, or as an appetiser at a party or summer BBQ this season alongside your favourite dipping sauce, they’ll be a hit however they’re eaten.
